Comparative influence of Odh and Adh loci on alcohol tolerance in Drosophila melanogaster

Abstract

The effect of ethanol on larva-to-pupa and larva-to-adult survival was compared in ten laboratory strains of Drosophila melanogaster. The strains had five different allele combinations at the Adh and Odh loci. Two parallel strains of the five two-locus genotypes were isolated from different isofemale lines, and so they had different genetic backgrounds… (More)
